A Summer Running Challenge

There are some people who run, and those who don’t. Personally, I’m a yogi and HIIT kind of girl.

This past semester our boys took to running. They love it. Their school participated in Kids on the Go! The goal is to get kids to run the length of a marathon by the end of the semester. The kids run the last mile in front of their friends and family at a local high school.

Javen ran 100 miles, and Pierce ran 45 miles! Wow! Not bad for a third grader and a kindergartner. Javen won the Golden Shoe Award for his outstanding effort and running more miles than anyone else in the school. Both boys received medals for their amazing effort.

My husband never backs down from a challenge and wants to keep the running spirit alive over the summer. As a result, Javen and Kevin will see who can reach 100 miles over the span of June and July. The winner gets a Fitbit or activity tracker of their choice.

I’m so proud of their accomplishments.

I’ll be on the mat if anyone needs me.
